Health tips: Don't drink tea with eggs if you want to get the most protein from them

IF YOU’RE having eggs for breakfast, don’t drink tea at the same time. A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that doing so can reduce the amount of protein that we absorb by 17 per cent. It is thought that compounds called polyphenols in tea can bind to protein in the egg, stopping us absorbing it.
